Wordful Wednesday

I decided to post a blog over from Angies blog 7 Clowns Circus. You post one of your favorite pictures and tell all about it....let the words roll!
This picture was taken at Christmas. It is my son C with his cousins J & J along with their Uncle L at their MeMaw's house. They look like perfect angels here. They are 1,2 & 3 in age. What 1, 2 & 3 year olds that you know just sit still and do puzzles. I just happened to capture the picture at the perfect time before the puzzles got dumped all over the floor! Uncle L was so great with them and patient. They say pictures don't lie...but really? This only lasted all of 10 seconds. haha! Kids will ALWAYS be kids. I love it!

Thankful Tuesday

As I'm sitting here thinking about everything I've been through lately, I've come to realize that there is a lot more than I should be thankful for. Below are my list of 8 things that I am thankful for today.

I'm thankful that I was able to find Caden a good preschool with absolutely no notice that his babysitter couldn't keep him anymore. God was completely in that.

I'm thankful for my bff that completely took over when I was frantic about who was going to keep my child this week. Without even having to ask, she jumped right in and offered to take him.

I'm thankful for my SIL/bff who I can call every single morning on our way to work and talk about our kids, family and problems and know that she isn't going to judge me in anyway.

I'm thankful that I have a wonderful support of family, friends and now bloggy friends to hear me vent, cry and laugh.

I'm thankful for my wonderful husband who always puts up with me even on the days that he doesn't want to.

I'm thankful that my sweet son is healthy and growing just like he's supposed to. (More on his kidney disease another day)

I'm thankful that my husband and I still have great jobs even though the economy is going downhill so fast.

I'm thankful that we have a mighty God that watches over us and takes care of us even when we deserve it the least.

Let me know what you are thankful for the most!

Not Me Monday

So what had happened was....I found this great idea over at MckMama''s called, Not Me Monday...go to her blog and check it out!

I totally did not hurt my bff's feelings this weekend. Nope, I would never do that, ever in a thousand years! I'm just not capable!

I did not lay around in my pj's all day Sunday just for the heck of it. I would never waste a precious day like that!

I did not play on my laptop all weekend just waiting to see if anyone left me comments on my new blog. No, I'm not that desperate to see who all may be reading my blog....nope, not me!

I absolutely did not check the link everyday last week to see what the "Big Spoiler" was on the Bachelor. Nope, I'm not so lost into that show that I can't wait to see it play out on tv. Nope, not me! Which reminds me, he's suppose to have a new video up today, so I'm not totally about to go to his site to check it out.

Wow...that's a lot of suff that I NEVER did...nope not me!

Hurt & Confused

See, what had happened was....just when I thought yesterday was over, today started and it's not much better. Wow, all my bloggy friends are going to think that I never have good days. I promise I do, I just started this bloggy thing at a time of need. But, maybe that's a good thing because then I can vent some and then move on. I promise I will have much more fun posts than the ones lately. That's a bloggy promise!

I got a phone call around lunch today from my friend who keeps Caden for me. She was calling to tell me that her husband told her that she couldn't keep him anymore. Why? You ask...because he's sick too much?!?!? I'm just trying to wrap my head around it. Caden has been sick a lot lately, but the majority of his sickness' have been ear infections which aren't even contagious. He's probably had 4 ear infections this winter alone. I know, no luck for me. He does have strep and thrush right now, but as soon as I found out he had strep, I called her right away so she would know. It's not like I would let him get her kids sick on purpose. I feel very hurt because before I even took Caden out of daycare we had a long discussion on the fact that I needed to know that this was a permenant situation and that everything would work out. I would have loved a much better reason other than he was sick too much. I'm extremely confused with that.

Anyway, to make matters worse I ended up hurting my bff's feelings really bad today. I NEVER meant to hurt her feelings the way that I did today. See, she has offered many times to keep Caden for me long term. She's kept him plenty for me on short notices, etc. But, I've never acted on her wanting to keep him long term. Reason for that is that I would never want anything to get between our friendship. When it comes to money, kids, etc. there are too many factors that could make us bicker or get in the way and I would never risk our friendship over that. Unfortunatley she got her feelings hurt in the process of me figuring it all out. Luckily, we are such great friends that we were able to talk about it, make things okay with us and then go to a dinner and a movie just her and I. It ended up being a great ending to an awful day!

Anyway, so there it is...there's my blog for today and the reason I'm so hurt & confused.

Why Me?

Wow, so this whole bloggy thing is a whole lot more therapudic than I thought it would be....already and it's only day 2!

So, after the long night last night, Caden woke up this morning about 8:45 a.m. in a very ill mood. Not that I'm surprised after the night we had. My bff came over with her D-D and the kids were playing and we were visiting, I was working and she was doing bloggy stuff! Caden decided to pitch a fit and during the fit, I was able to see inside his throat....YUCKY!!!! He had a throat full of white stuff. I'm thinking puss pockets and immediately thought, strep throat! My bff is like, thanks....her D-D is over with him playing and now he's going to get sick.

Let me back up to last week. He had a severe ear infection with puss all in his ear along with severe wheezing and coughing. He was already on an antibiotic along with the steroids and breathing treatments. Just when I thought we were in the clear....he starts to get sick again. WHAT? WHY ME! He just got better, we just spent all this money last week getting him well.

Well, the money thief just knew that I got a check in the mail yesterday for $61 and some odd dollars...they thought, well, I'm gonna make Caden sick again so I can take every penny of what you "thought" you were going to be able to buy groceries with. Yea, so a $30 copay and $25 later on antibiotics, turns out that Caden has THRUSH and STREP THROAT!! and my $61 is now GONE. Hello, where did this come from? He's not even in daycare! Again, WHY ME, I must ask. I know, I know, I should be thankful that God provided the money to be able to pay my copay and antibiotics with...Yes, I'm very thankful, but it ALWAYS happens, as soon as I think I may be ahead, something goes wrong. WHY ME?

But, WAIT, the day isn't over yet. Not until midnight at least. When my bff came over this morning we made a Hardee's run in her van. Turns out my wallet fell out of my purse without me realizing it. I go to the doctor and to the drug store without really realizing that my wallet isn't with me. I wrote a check to both places and only needed my checkbook. It wasn't until I was in the Zaxby's drive through that I realized, where is my wallet? So, I called my bff to look in her car....YES, it's there. NO, Zaxby's doesn't take checks, so I get out of line and drive all the way back to her house just to get my debit card to be able to feed my sick baby some lunch. this day ever going to end! Nope, not yet. I'm on my way back to Zaxby's and lost track...I went home. UGH! I had no food at home, so I had to turn all the way around and go back to Zaxby's. So, I am finally home, about to get sweet Caden in bed and hopefully get some work done now.

Oh yea, I almost forgot, I do have a job....I'm supposed to be working all this time. I have great-understanding bosses!! Thank goodness for that!

So, until next time...WHY ME?

1:45 AM & I'm Tired

So, it's 1:45 am and I'm up with a screaming child who refuses to go back to sleep. We haven't had this problem in over a week. See, Caden has been sick. He's had a severe ear infection with coughing and wheezing. He was on breathing treatments, steroids and the antibiotic. I believe the steroids make him "crazy!" Caden was through with his 4 days of steroids, so he hasn't had it in about a week. He started to have the "horse" sound in his voice, so I decided to give him the steroid again to see if it would help. OMG....absolutely the WRONG thing to do. The child is absolutely crazy. (He did this originally while he was on the steroid as well). I thought it would be worth the craziness just to make him better. I'm actually starting to re-think that. I'm about to go absolute nuts! My great hubby is with him now and then it will be my turn again in a few. He's actually got him calmed down a bit watching cartoons. This is going to make for a long day tomorrow. Luckily, I get to work from home, but poor hubby has to go into work.

So, after fighting him for the past hour to go back to sleep, we gave in and came into the living room to watch cartoons until he can't hold his little eyes open anymore. Is that bad? Nights like this makes me re-think whether I want more children or not..haha! I mean, of course we want more children, but oh my, this is crazy!

Obviously, you can tell that I'm delirious from being so sleep I'm going to end this before I keep rambling on and on and on and on and on...yea, you get the point.

Wow, My First Blog Ever!

Okay, so I've never really tried this blogging thing before. I've always made fun of my bff who loves to blog so much. So, I'm thinking what is the harm in trying, right? We always like to get each other into trouble and hooked on things. Usually, it's me hooking her onto things - well, I guess both of us, so hey, now it's her turn to get me hooked onto something. Did I just make absolutely no sense at all?

It all started out this morning when I wanted to make a comment on her blog "Momma Needs A Time Out." I've never tried to comment before, but this morning was different. In order to do that, I had to have an account, etc., etc., now here I am blogging....ugh! Hopefully this will be a lot more therapudic than I think it will be...haha!

So, in my world of craziness, I have the most awesome husband ever, the most beautiful son and a wonderful family! I love my nieces and newphews so much and long for time with my best friends in life! God has blessed me more than I will ever know!!!

So, hopefully there will be lots more to come from my crazy life!

There you have it, my first blog post ever. Wow, that was fun!
